The automotive market is always growing and changing, which can make choosing a vehicle tough. For consumers needing a vehicle that excels in passenger and cargo space, SUVs are the optimal choice. One SUV that stands out in these areas is the 2016 Toyota Highlander.
|Engine Size:||2.7 L|
The 2016 Highlander offers eight-passenger capacity with its three-row seating configuration. Consumers needing less passenger seats, and even better cargo capacity, the Highlander can also be equipped with a seven-passenger seating configuration; this layout replaces the second-row bench seat with two captain's chairs. Many consumers prefer the seven-passenger seating configuration because it provides better comfort due to captain's chairs that can slide forward and back, as well as recline.
Consumers that need good cargo capacity for daily trips to school, grocery bags or a full load of luggage, consumers will be pleased with the Highlander. Behind third-row seats, there is 14 cubic feet of cargo-carrying capacity; with rear seats folded down, cubic feet expands to 83.7.
For basic storage needs – cell phones, iPads, snacks – the Highlander houses many handy storage features, such as a built-in shelf. Located on the dashboard, it serves as a resting place for small, personal items. For larger items, there is a large storage box beneath the console armrest.
Being the designated driver for a large crew is a big responsibility. Consumers can feel confidence behind the wheel of the 2016 Highlander with its impressive list of safety equipment and features. It comes with traction and stability control, antilock disc brakes, and rearview camera. All passengers are protected by airbags located in both the front and sides of the vehicles. Drivers also get the added safety benefits created by a driver knee airbag.
Depending on trim level, the Highlander is outfitted with extra safety technology that increases protection for all on board. Some features include a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert and frontal-collision warning and mitigation system with automatic braking, lane-departure warning. Consumers love the Toyota Safety Connect telematics system offered in the 2016 Highlander, which adds extra features like emergency assistance, stolen-vehicle locator, and automatic-collision notification.
For a full-size SUV, the 2016 Toyota Highlander provides the necessary space required for the passengers and cargo of large families. Consumers that plan to take their families on the road for long drives to vacation hotspots and other memorable events, the Highlander makes a true road-trip companion. It exudes a luxury ride quality that everyone on board will enjoy, and fuel economy is excellent so more money is spent on fun rather than gas.
